Yamaha Recalls 2015 YZF-R1M Motorcycles for an Improperly Manufactured Rear Shock Absorber

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA (Yamaha) is recalling certain model year 2015 YZFR1M motorcycles manufactured January 19, 2015, to March 23, 2015.

The affected motorcycles may have been built with an improperly manufactured rear shock absorber. The nut on the damper rod for these shock absorbers may loosen, resulting in a loss of damping and the possible disassembling of the shock.

If the piston rod nut loosens, shock absorber performance would be affected, possibly causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.

350 units are affected.
